WIlson 97L - light but balanced and powerful

By: on 11 May 2021
Racquets are a very personal choice however I really enjoy the balance and power that the Wilson 97L gives in a relatively light frame. I've now got two generations of this racquet and they're the best I have owned. I have hit with the heavier racquets in the Pro Staff range and found them to be a bit too fast through the shot for my liking, even though they are definitely a bit more powerful. They seemed more head light and grip heavy, whereas this racquet feels relatively balanced. It still delivers sufficient power, is fantastic at the net, being nimble and fast for volleying, and is easy to serve with. After a lot of experimenting with strings I've settled on Wilson Sensation Plus mains and Head Sonic Pro crosses as a blend that seems to get the most out of the frame. Very happy and hope that Wilson keeps making the 97L.
